Mumbai: Actor Eddie Redmayne said he had to explain to custom officers why he was carrying a wand in his luggage.
The 'Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them' star was forced to explain to border officers why he was carrying a "really sharp, scary object" in his luggage, which turned out to be the prop from the fantasy film, reported Contactmusic.
"I brought it because I felt like it would be reassuring to have Newt's wand. But then we were coming through customs and I suddenly realise that a wand looks like a really sharp, scary object and then to try and explain it to a customs person, I was like, 'Have you seen the ... No?' That was a bit disastrous'," he said.
And the 34-year-old actor now feels he cannot use a briefcase in real life as he doesn't want people to think he is copying his character, magizoologist Newt Scamander....
